How to unlock "Five" the Penatgon map on Zombies for Black Ops


Call of Duty Black Ops automatically comes with one new map called "Kino Der Toten." The hardened and prestige editions also come with 4 cooperative maps from call of duty world at war. However, there is also another map called "five". This map takes place within the pentagon. You play as historical characters such as JFK and Fidel Castro, and have to defend the pentagon from zombies. There are a few ways to unlock this map. Many people think there is only one way to unlock. The first way of getting the "five" zombie map for black ops is completing the single player campaign. Originally, I thought this was the only way to unlock the map, but it is not. The campaign can be completed on any difficulty if done this way.

How to unlock "five zombie map" without completing campaign:

When you first boot up Call of Duty Black Ops, once you arrive at the main menu, look down. Your not actually in just a menu. The room that you're in can be walked around in. When you look down you will notice that your stuck to an electric chair. Quickly press the left and right triggers and you will break free from the wrist straps. Notice that you can move around freely in the room. Look around the room until you find a computer. This is located in the corner of the room, it is not hard to find. Go on the computer, and you will notice that you can type in commands. Use the code "3arc unlock".(Do not put the quotes in, I just put it in quotes to show the code) Once you type in the code, click enter on the computer. Once you're done, leave the computer and go back to the computer. Go down to zombies at the bottom. You will now have the pentagon unlocked to play!


The five zombie map

The code should work, but if for some strange reason it does not, you can be invited from friends to play it. The code is a much easier way to play it without completing the campaign though. The dog rounds that are normally in zombies are now replaced with a new type of round. This round has a doctor that runs around and will steal one of your weapons. Tip: If he gets to close, switch to your weaker weapon. The doctor will teleport around. Killing him without anyone having their weapon stolen, allows you to unlock an achievement 360/trophy for PSN.

There is a cut scene that begins before you start the five zombie map. This will occur in solo mode, but may also occur in cooperative. The cut scene shows the four historical characters speaking to each other before zombies invade the pentagon. Get ready to kill some zombies!

Note: sorry if anyone used the code and it did not work, you have to put unlock after 3arc

3arc unlock

If anyone is having any trouble feel free to ask me,however the code should work for everyone. Be careful when typing in the code

Hey guys, so my brother had the game for ps3 n me n my best friend became obsessed wit zombies (haha guys cant believe it) and he left n took his system with him :( however, last nite i found out its on wii so i bought it. i don't like playing the online part or campaign, only zombies map five. I have the regular controller wit the nonchuck, i can look down in the main menu but it wont let me break free. Can anyone walk me thru it? i don't like that theatre map. its too dark!


phil 6 years ago


shake the nunchuck and wii-mote A lot you should see the hands struggling more than normal, it will then break free. the cheat does not work on wii though =( what u can do is 3ARC INTEL which gives you all intel in campaign OR play a style of the oldest and first computer game ever called adventure by typing in ZORK

Chirs 6 years ago

Cool. but how did u figure out the code 3ARC unlock? where there any clues in the game, or wat?

David 470 profile image

David 470 6 years ago from Pennsylvania, United States Author

Honestly, I do not remember. It was not from the game though, but I believe I heard from word of mouth. Its a pretty cool code though. I am surprised some people said it did not work though. Maybe it is different on the wii?

GamesofReason 6 years ago

Thanks.I have a glitch that the credits wont show.

Bk 6 years ago

Im not saying teh wii is bad because i personally own one but when teh make a game for wii they have to unintentionally cut stuff from the game.The code (3arc unlock or intel) wasn't that hard to figure out cause when you do combat training all teh clan tags are 3arc and it takes a good second to decide to type it in teh computer. Also can somebody invite you to one of teh special hardened only maps even if you have teh reglar black Ops edition?

David 470 profile image

David 470 6 years ago from Pennsylvania, United States Author

No, you need the hardened edition if you want to play old nazi zombie maps with new weapons.

To my dismay, barely anyone on my entire friends list has them, and I paid extra for it. Play with random players though

Simon Riley 6 years ago

ok, i have black ops for nintendo wii, i have completed the campaign and i have tried 3arc unlock, but i still don't have five. what's the problem?

ANSWERman 6 years ago

THEY DON'T HAVE "FIVE" FOR WII, PERIOD!!! i wish they did, BUT THEY DON'T. ive searched all over, and i found a few ppl sayin that they will have five for wii soon, cuz their r tryin to turn such a hd and complex level so that the wii can play it. it might take a few months

REZ 6 years ago

there are a few things not on the wii. dead ops arcade isn't on there either and im pissed, but 3arc codes don't do anything and theres only kino der toten for wii. the plan for the is gonna be that there will eventually be five and 3arc codes and DOA, and when that's done, it will probably be available on wiiware and you will have you pay to get it. if i had to guess, it would probably be worth 1000 points ($10 basically) because for ps3 and xbox 360 have these features, but the game normally sells for $60 while the wii version is only $50. hope this helps and actually makes some sense.

GOD DAM IT! played five at a friends house but i bought wii version and no FIVE!!!!!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:(

coolgamer322 6 years ago

Yo REZ the 3arc codes do something no the wii if you didn't know. It gives u all campaign missions. And the map five problably might be patched soon and so will DOA. The map pack first strike will also be announced on the wii no march 1st

Frankster 6 years ago

i liked all the comments in here so i just got from here that there is no fives for the moments =S bad XD sad u.U but also in kino der totem it wont let me play with a friend and ive heard that in ps3 you can play 2 in the same console.... is it for wii different or what?! :S thank you =)

Jeremy 6 years ago

Yes Frankster on the Wii you can not play co-op on the Wii you can only play online or solo. I too was shocked at this, the first time I played this game was on the X-box then a few days later bought it for my Wii and was pissed to see that multi-player was cut.

louie 6 years ago

David 470 profile image

David 470 6 years ago from Pennsylvania, United States Author

As of yet, no, but I hope they do because none of my friends got it. Maybe they will release old maps for download for those who did not get hardended edtions

I paid 85 dollars for hardened edition, but most people were not aware you get 4 extra zombie maps. I have to play with random people on classic maps

Mrwhowantsfive 6 years ago

so what date are they exactly going to put five on the wii because its making me angry and where do you get downloadable content for the wii? the wii shop channel?

hey 6 years ago

im pissed off to because of that to wii is ok. But they should make all games the same

james 6 years ago

what i do not agree with is that when they make five for the wii that we are going to have to pay for it but in the xbox and the ps3 its already included which i think is wrong and plus you cannot play split screen on the wii which is very disapointing.

Big chris 6 years ago

the arcade zombie map is a code too type in doa

Nintendo Hax0r 6 years ago

Info : The Nintendo Wii does not include any other zombie maps for Black Ops. There will NOT be a DLC. However, If you get a custom CIOS, you can play custom hacked Zombie maps. Homebrew ftw. That's why you hack. (No I didn't buy the game, its called USB Loader o.o)

EpicZombiepwner 5 years ago

GUYS GUESS WHAT!!! you know the update the wii just had on the game? well i think you have to buy five and other maps in a map pack 4 wii because if you go to private match over wifi there is a button that says change map under start game and if we had another map we could change it...

ok while reading the comments i saw someone say that they were trying to fix the no five map for wii problem by march 1st i cantr wait but i was shocked that there is no split screen for wii either tried turning on both wii remotes but it still didn't give me the option only needs wifi so stupid! but hey still cant wait for march 1st! :)

Carl22 5 years ago

It will not be released for the wii because it is not a HD gaming console. The system is not powerful enough to produce the required graphics on zombies 'five'. Add me on ps3 - smithy201998 for pure zombiefied action lol. I also have the old maps as i got the hardened edition.

Limitsz 5 years ago

It will be release for the wii for sure, it just require time, Reason they don't have split screen is because the wii doesn't have enough RAM to surporrt split. it only has 88mb. not much the ps3 and Xbox has 512 mb so yeah. and what proves there gonna release a new map is the recent update, it has a "Change Map" in the online mode. so just wait. Maybe around march they will have a new update for the wii

Jordon 5 years ago

for everyone complaining it 5 isn't on the wii, that's ur first problem you are expecting way to much from a wii . wii is weak. buy a ps3 if youy want good gaming not childish crap. and also the old maps arent on the hardened/prestige editions

the maps come from a download code. so buying hardened/prestige edition game is not worth it unless it has an unused code or if you have people who can hook up the old maps for free, ps3 style.(if you know what that is lol)

RealGamer 5 years ago

Stupid flamers. All consoles are for "real gaming". Just because you blew all of your paper route money on a ps3 does not make the wii any less of a console. And if you want gaming that is any more "real" play it on pc.

leonituse666 5 years ago

ok guys like previous comments said wii cant suppurt splitscreen or the map 5 there is too much ram needed for it to work ok and the map pack strike isn't coming out for a bit if its ever coming out wii will eventually have map packs it even said so but for now there are none and i agree with realgamer that just because u have a ps3 doesn't make a wii anyless of a system ok just get over it

wow you people are dumb the memory and engine used to run black ops on wii is large im glad they didn't put five in because it would have crashed the game treyarch wanted five and doa in the wii version and everything else but couldn't cause of the limited space the wii offers

jbizzle 5 years ago

Sorry to break this to you guys, but the developers emphasized the fact that putting zombies on the Wii was an experiment, so of course you won't have all of the features of the Xbox PS3 and PC. In addition, World at War for the Wii didn't have zombie mode. The Wii has terrible graphics (compared to the other consoles) and simply can't handle a lot of the material other consoles can. Sorry. In my opinion, the Wii isn't good for shooters (except the first Red Steel. The second Red Steel sucked really bad. It's luke a downgrade from the original.). It's good for games like Wii Sports Resort or other fun little mini game-type things, but not all-out hardcore gaming.

Manny 5 years ago

I want the new maps for black ops but I don't have the money to buy the hardened or prestige editions. I hear that you can download the games from someone elses psn account. Is it true? If yes can I PLEASE use someones account only for a few hours or minutes. (depending on how long the download is)

Nickolie 5 years ago

Wii is for newbs guys, no offense wii players, dough it is kinda hard to aim and stuff, wii isn't as popular as the ps3 and wii there for e erythinv new that comes in black ops, is for the xbox 360 and ps3. Alot of people don't play black ops on wii, in fact I didn't even know that there is black ops for wii. I suggest ( if y'all really love black ops ) to buy a 360 or ps3, to play black ops, it's WAY better.

Wii is the best for shooters due to the fact u actually have to move and aim the remote like an actual gun, if it had more powerful mechanics the wii would put playstation and xbox nearly outta the market, the wii has so much un used potential that could so easily be used, the sooner the other zombies maps are added the better

I have a question about five. At a random round a guy appears which will steal your weapons and flee in the teleporter. But why is he there what is the meaning of him with the map? Why did treyarch made a man that steal your weapons in the white house? And who is he?

drake 5 years ago

I tried it 10 times and it dosent work and why does it work on ps3 but not wii and why is their a guy that steals your weapons that's gay.

Elyjel 5 years ago

Does it have to be caps?

TheWraith 5 years ago

Drake- the code does not work on wii... You must buy one of the new(and long awaited) map packs. Im happy that they put those in :D. And if you don't like the technician/weapon stealer due there is a way to kill him before he can take your weapon. When he runs toward you aim your gun toward his haed and when he is about 10 feet away, start reapetedly knifing. He cannot take your gun when you are knifing and after 3 knifes to the head he will die and return any weapons you or your teamates may have lost to him/her.

General- Map packs came out on Wii! :D not to expensive either! :) Now i feel the Wii is equal to, and maybe surpasses the Xbox 360 and PS3, because Wii is the only system that gives you a lifelike feel because you have to aim the gun as you would in real life. :) The only thing i can now find that is bad on Black Ops Wii, is that there are still no killcams, so you can never find those nooby snipers

epic_ rap15 battles 4 years ago

3arc UNLOCK doesn't even work. cuase on the youtube channels people are always going to the computer first and yet don't go to show what maps they have unlock and then they put in the code and go and see if they had unlocked it and what do you know. five is unlock. it was unlocked at the start. so they just make us look like idiots.

For all the Wii users.... you have to download map packs from the Wii shop channel then save it to an SD card.... make sure that you have the SD card in the Wii before you start the game....
